Description
Description
Casa do Terraço is the perfect getaway to experience a genuine slice of Lisbon paradise! It is a second floor flat which is accessible via wooden stairs and possesses a total area of 98 m2 including the terrace. Facing south and located a few meters from the Tagus River this two bedroom apartment is suitable for four people with a large sunny terrace overlooking the Fado Museum and Alfama.
It is a central apartment in the heart of Lisbon in the scenic and picturesque Alfama district. A couple of minutes from the waterfront this charming apartment has enchanting Portuguese traditional details such as hardwood and terracotta tiled floors, open stone features and hand painted tiles with historical themes. The 23m2 sun-filled terrace is the perfect relaxing spot to end each day reading a book, savoring a glass of Portuguese wine or just enjoying the views.

Apartment description:
Dining/Living room (20m2) with three balconies with panoramic views over the Jardim do Tabaco street and the Fado Museum. There's an antique wood dining table and matching chairs, a double sofa-bed crowned by a big mirror, cable TV and a Radio and IPod Station. This room was once one of the towers of the "Fernandina" Wall, a fact revealed by the depth of its walls (more than one meter). From the one of the balconies you can see the terrace below.
Bedroom (10m2) with one double bed and a wooden wardrobe.
Bedroom (9m2) with a standard double-bed, a big mirror and a dresser.
Bathroom (5m2) with two large windows, hand-painted tiles with 15th century Portuguese "Caravelas Latinas" used during the Age of Discovery and a marvelous antique iron tub. Full supply of towels, soap and other necessities as well as a hair dryer.
Kitchen (7m2) with everything necessary to prepare and enjoy a meal: stove and oven, kettle, plates, cups, knives & forks, pots, pans, kitchen utensils, a fridge, an electric water heater, a microwave and a toaster. From the kitchen you can access the terrace descending the stairs where you can find a small fountain in the wall. It has also a washing-machine.
Terrace (23m2): truly unique space decorated with traditional hand-forged iron railings and several stone seats sculpted into the walls. These seats are called "namoradeiras" in Portuguese which means "made for dating" because they are made in pairs of two, one in front of the other. There is a marble table with four wooden chairs where you can enjoy a meal or simply enjoy the sun and the views. But if you prefer a shady place you can lay down on the forged iron bed, typical from Alentejo, and read a book or plan the trips for the next day.
Walk-in closet (4m2) to put baggage and clothes and with extra blankets and pillows.

Garden Flat Maestro (Principe Real)

The appartment is located in a pleasant neighbourhood of Lisbon. It a spacious appartment with enough room for 4 people and a nice little garden. The equipment in the kitchen, expected for a longer stay, is limited. The appartment is located in an older building, which on one hand creates a nice environment, but it can be noisy depending on the activity of the neighbours. And as we experienced in other appartments in Lisbon the beds are of a relative poor quality, good enough for a few days but less appropriate if you stay longer.

Large Apartment with Terrace

Nos atendió Carlos a la hora indicada. Nos costo un poco encontrar el apartamento porque estaban de obras en la circular de Lisboa pero no hubo muchas complicaciones. El apartamento en si está muy bien es para 6 personas aunque fueramos sólo dos. Tiene todas las comodidades que se pueda esperar. Está un poco alejado del centro y del parque de las naciones. Los autobuses te llevan al centro en menos de 10 minutos pero algunas veces las esperas son largas y mas de noche. El barrio puede parecer no muy bueno a primera vista pero es tranquilo y sin muchos ruidos. Para nosotros fue perfecto ya que tienes a un paso de autobus todo lo que quieres ver, si te sacas la tarjeta de 24 horas de transporte por 6 € te mueves sin problemas por toda la ciudad utilizando cualquier medio de transporte menos el barco y el tren de cercanias teniendo en cuenta que el billete sencillo vale solo 1.80 €.

Large Apartment with Terrace

Die Wohnung ist schön und geräumig. Leider riecht sie etwas muffig - offenbar ist sie feucht. Die Espressomaschine war defekt und eine der Duschen läuft sehr schlecht ab. Aber die große Terrasse ist top und das Viertel entwickelt sich gerade. Nette Restaurants und eine tolle Bar sind um die Ecke. In die Innenstadt kommt man sehr schnell mit dem Bus.

Romantic Old Town Flat with Terrace

I can recommend the apartment of Roger. Central location. Short walking distance to the city and Metro. Check-In was very good and on time, we even got a google map link with good nearby restaurants. Communication and support was perfect.

Only the cleanliness of bathroom (shower) and the kitchen cabinets could be better. John
